Exciting food allergy update!!!

Last night I ate pistachio ice cream! As I sit here I feel like that could be the entire post alone but let me explain. Recently found a new allergist (didn't like the old one, this one is so much better), and he did a new round of tests since it's been 2 years since my last food allergy test. Results are in. Treenuts (other than almonds) are back in the diet. Peanuts are still under the not a chance category :-(. As for almonds, somewhere along the way my blood test for almonds didn't happen so now we have to re-do that to find out about almonds. The doctor was great and said that if the blood test comes back negative I can do an oral challenge!

So last night I ate pistachio ice cream. I used to love it as a kid so I couldn't resist last night at the grocery store. My first few bits I was incredibly nervous, but I was safe! It tasted great and now I'm excited to have walnuts again.

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend!

Yummy health baked salmon!

Made this in less than 20 minutes today for lunch. Salmon fillets, a pinch of sea salt, lemon juice, a sprinkle of pepper and dill weed. Place on tin foil, bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Steam some veggies to with and enjoy!

5 months into 2012's resolutions

At the beginning of the year I decided to set myself monthly goals that felt attainable rather than 1 or 2 overwhelming giant goals for the year. So how am I doing?

January: Get the house unpacked and settled
So with the new job that I started right after moving this didn't happen quite as fast as I thought but we are settle and only room (it's an extra office so it's not like anyone but us sees it anyways) really needs attention.

February: Run the Rock and Roll half marathon
I walked a lot of this because I didn't train like I should of but I finished- Hubby ran the whole thing and did great!)

March: Love my wedding and new marriage
Check and check! My wedding was amazing and I'm loving married life!

April: Plant, and try not to kill, some flowers for spring
Yeah this just didn't happen. But the in-laws sent us a bamboo plant that's still alive so I think that counts for something

May: Try boxing
I just finished a boot camp with the idea that I would be more prepared for boxing but I'm actually enjoying boot camp so I'm going to stick with that for a bit longer. I'll do boxing when I'm bored with boot camp. 

I think I've done pretty darn well so far! Looking ahead I feel like each of these goals are still attainable. Next month I gave myself the goal of one bucket list item but didn't share which one. We are going to Vegas for a weekend so that takes care of that but I wanted to do something else. So I'm still debating which item I'll do but I'm thinking either #2, #7, or #37. Any suggestions?

I hope all moms had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday!
